The high speed toll station in Henan Shaanxi Province
The runaway Mercedes is still racing. The provincial toll station at the junction of Henan and Shaanxi Lianhuo expressway has become a problem for everyone. If it is not completely unobstructed here, it will not be able to let the galloping Benz pass smoothly.
In an interview with the Legal Evening News middot, general officer Kepeng of Sanmenxia branch of Henan high speed traffic police said that from the beginning of this morning, he had received numerous calls, and many media expressed concern about the gallop on the high speed after the cruise failure of Mercedes Benz.
Peng said that there have been many cars at the junction of Shaanxi and Henan high-speed toll stations. Every day, many cars line up here to pay for fees. If they don't vacate the lane in time, there may be a tragedy of car damage and death here. "The speed of 120 km / h cannot be reduced, so the channel must be opened. "Officer Peng said that the lane of the toll station is not as wide as the expressway. Mr. Xue needs to drive at 120 km / h. This is a test for anyone. Henan high speed traffic police cleared three lanes of the toll station quickly, and ensured that the central square of the provincial border station was unobstructed. At the same time, Henan high-speed traffic police communicate with Shaanxi high-speed traffic police, opening all the lanes into Shaanxi.
Less than one minute after everything was ready, at 22:25 that night, according to the guidance of the high-speed traffic police, Mr. Xue drove a Mercedes Benz car from the etc channel of Henan Shaanxi border toll station to pass through the provincial border station without obstacles and left Henan. Fortunately, after running 100 kilometers, Mercedes Benz finally stopped in Shaanxi.
According to an interview with Beijing time, Mr. Xue, the owner of the car, said that he succeeded in slowing down and braking by opening and closing the door, rather than the previously reported "remote parking by manufacturers".
The cause of the car owner's failure in buying a car for a short time remains to be investigated
According to Peng, the driver, Mr. Xue, drives along Lianhuo Expressway from east to west, with the maximum speed limit of 120 km in Luoyang section, while in Sanmenxia area, the speed limit is generally 100 km due to the large number of hills. Mr. Xue has been speeding since his car broke down.
"It is not clear whether it is the cause of the car or the owner's operation. Further investigation is needed. "Officer Peng said that after communication, it was learned that the car owners didn't buy for a long time. As for the reason why the "cruise control" fails, the specific reason of this matter must be known after the car owner comes back from Sichuan and understands clearly.
